"Blueberries and cherries with floral and cocoa-powder undertones. Medium to full body, ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Lovely length to this, especially for this difficult vintage. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."

"A rich, plum- and black cherry–infused red, pitting the lush texture against a solid base of tannins. Tobacco, earth and mineral notes add depth. The finish is vibrant and long. Drink now through 2030."

"Marco Ricasoli’s rocky vineyards in Monti, a high-elevation subzone of Galileo-in-Chianti, yielded a juicy, mouthwatering and concentrated Chianti Classico in the warm and dry 2017 vintage. Its flavors of black cherry and raspberry show an inner brightness and lift that meshes well with the mint and sage notes. The flavors stay taut through the finish and will complement a wide range of dishes." Best Buy
"Gaiole in Chianti. 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo, 5% Colorino.
Dark ruby. Subdued but concentrated. Bags of sweet-sour cherry fruit and a layer of polished tannins. Great length and grip. 17/20 points. (WS)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Suave and balanced; tart cherries, light pepper, baking spices. A traditional, flavorful and outstanding blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. One of the finest Chianti Classicos from the region, vintage after vintage.
